Duggar: Amy Duggar Talks Negative Social Media Comments

Amy Duggar King Instagram

Duggar fans know that Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth recently lost their baby when Joy was 20 weeks pregnant. Earlier this week, the couple detailed the loss on their joint Instagram account.


Most of the family members have posted sweet and encouraging messages to comfort Joy and Austin as they go through this tough time. Currently, Joy and Austin have one son, Gideon.

Duggar fans call out cousin Amy Duggar King

Right now, several other Duggars are pregnant. This includes cousin Amy King. Amy and her husband Dillon are expecting their first child, a baby boy, later this year.

Throughout her pregnancy, Amy has been updating fans with cute pictures of her bump. She has also been pretty honest about the baby kicking her during the night and keeping her awake.

Since Joy shared the news of her loss, Amy has continued to share updates about her own pregnancy. On Friday, she shared a post and said she was going nursery shopping.


Because of this, Duggar fans have begun to call out Amy. They think she should be limiting the pregnancy posts temporarily. One fan wrote, “Smdh just for a few days out of respect cant you knock off the baby posts?” In response, Amy wrote, “I won’t apologize for what’s going on in my life,” and added an eye roll emoji.

Another fan added, “I got kinda sad seeing this… you get to go on enjoying your pregnancy, but I think about poor joy, who just lost her little girl”.

Several other users left comments, but those have since been deleted because Amy decided to block the haters.

Cousin Amy responds to the negative comments

In addition to Amy’s short response above, she wrote out another reply to the fan. She wrote, “Also, after what my family has been through how dare you say that to me. This baby is bringing me so much happiness, do you even know how many tears I have cried lately?”

In her Instagram stories, Amy talked about how she would be blocking the people who were leaving negative comments on her page. The Instagram stories are no longer available to watch because they are only on someone’s page for 24 hours. She also talked about how much her family has been through in the past month or so.

It’s definitely been a very hard time for the Duggar family, and the negative comments don’t help. Fortunately, some of Amy’s fans have backed her up and said she should still be able to enjoy her pregnancy.

What do you think of Amy continuing to post about her pregnancy while Joy and Austin are grieving? What do you think of her response to the fans? Leave a comment below.
